Companions Cup

Post by ericdoman1 » Thu Dec 15, 2011 10:41 pm

Hi y'all

Hidde started the idea but was thinking of a new comp cup.

This is Morbio's baby but I am butting in just to get feedback.

I am thinking along the lines of an Early Byzantium period in 565AD the year Belisarius died.

Also these armies are very new and fresh?

Scoring system as before. Five players (or more if agreed upon). No civil wars. 4 teams, Uk, Europe, Americas and the ROTW and 700 points. Any of the allies can be used as long as they fit into the time period

Armies

Early Byzantine
Sassanid Persian (later list)
Later Visigoth
Italian Ostrogoth
African Vandals

Others just in case

Early South Slav
Western Turks (Belisarius fought the Bulgars but E Bulgar army is after period)
So we would all need to have DAF and LT

Otherwise we could work with the Nikephorian period?

Cheers


Eric

Although I won't be playing because I don't have, and won't be getting, the required expansion, I do hope there is sufficient interest and desire start the competition. 8)

I shall watch the results and be cheering on the British Isles team. :wink:

I won't be getting it either. Hey, Morbio, maybe you can host a RoR competition again?

Hi M NZ

Missed your name out.

BTW have you seen that remarkable cricket catch from a NZder in a 20/20 game. Was it Bevan Small?

Cheers

We are a bit stuck for players but if CC starts after Feb 14th one more will join us

Hope that's OK as I know it will coincide with new LOEG season.

Also is 600pts OK?

I am in the USA but a lot of my family is still in Germany. IF, you get in a bind and need to fill out your teams I will play as Europe in honor of my Grandparents. I am fairly new but am pretty familiar with Macedonian era.

Hi GrudgeBringer

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately it is based on where you are living.

Experienced and or good players would be preferred as it is quite a tough competition.

As with most things the more you play, the better you will become.

Even so check out Leagues and Tournaments there may be some comps that might be of interest. There will probably be the League of Extraordinary Gentleman as well which will begin mid February.


Cheers

The Format

Post by ericdoman1 » Tue Jan 17, 2012 9:56 pm

This is the fourth Companions Cup.

Team captains please confirm your willingness to lead your armies to glory/ignominy (delete as applicable) and determine your commanders for the forthcoming campaign. You can keep the same team or draft in new blood whichever you decide is best.

Reminder of rules, new armies and terrain

This will be a team event with teams representing 4 world regions; British Isles (UK & Ireland), Europe (excluding British Isles), North America (US & Canada) and Rest of World (all other places). .

Tournament Format

For a change if it is acceptable all teams will play against each other, hopefully this will make the final games even more exciting.

As before there will be a random draw to decide which teams are home and away

Teams, Captains and Selection

The teams;
Hannibal (representing British Isles) will be captained by
Caesar (representing North America) will be captained by
Pyrrhus (representing Europe) will be captained by
Alexander (representing RoW) will be captained by

Each team will consist of 5 players.

The captain of each team;

- will select players for the team, whether they do this based on LoEG position, their knowledge, first-come requests, etc. is up to them.

The following forum document viewtopic.php?p=191294#191294 will be used to determine a player's location and eligibility for a team. So, if you want to be considered for this event then please update the document!

- will determine which army each of his players commands.
- will have some influence regarding which armies fight each other (more later)
- may want to give guidance regarding army composition and tactics

Armies, Points and Terrain


The 5 armies for this tournament will be 600 points and are;
- Alexandrian Macedonian
- Thracian
- Skythian
- Later Achaeminiad
- Classical Indian

ALL ALLIES CAN BE USED

The terrain (with match number) for this tournament are;
1. Very Crowded
2. Crowded
3. Mixed
4. Open
5. Very Open

Determination of Matches

The match-up of all 5 armies will be determined before any battles begin. The process for doing this is as follows;
- The captain of the away team will nominate an army to fight match number 1.
- After seeing the enemy army the captain of the home team will then nominate an army to fight match number 1. He will also propose an army to fight match 2.
- After seeing the enemy army the captain of the away team will then nominate an army to fight match number 2. He will also propose an army to fight match 3.
- After seeing the enemy army the captain of the home team will then nominate an army to fight match number 3. He will also propose an army to fight match 4.
- After seeing the enemy army the captain of the away team will then nominate an army to fight match number 4.
- Match 5 is determined by what's left.

N.B. A captain may not chose the same army for any match (i.e. civil war) unless it is the 5th match.

Both captains will then assign their players to the armies and PM them to me. I will publish them once I have received both selections.

Players then create their respective 600 point armies.

Each home player creates his battle (with FoW and double moves on), PMs his opponent and fights the battle. Note: This relies on both players to select the same terrain for the battle!

The winner should publish the results on this forum.

Determination of Team Match Results

A win will gain a point, a draw half a point, no points for a loss.
A team wins if it gets 3 or more points in a match.
If both teams get 2.5 points then total team BP difference will count (total team BPs for minus total team BPs against).
If still a tie then the team with most BPs for... to encourage attacking play!
If still a tie then captains will play-off with 600 point Alexander Macedonian armies, repeated until a winner is found.

Administration

I will administer the tournament, which comprises of;
- The selection of armies for the tournament
- Decding upon the points used for the tournament
- The selection of 5 terrain compositions
- The random draw of all matches. This will determine home advantage too.
- The collection of army-player assignments and publishing of them
- Arbitration on any rule disputes (hopefully I've thought of all eventualities)

I hope you will all trust me to be impartial in the draw and not to abuse any information I may see regarding team selections OR we could find somebody completely neutral to administer this tournament

Initial draw to follow soon....

humble apologies but I will be very busy at work over the next few months so will have to withdraw from the ROTW team.

Sincere apologies.
